Migrating virtual vcenter (Storage vmotion)

Jump to solution

I am looking if it is possible to perform storage vmotion for a virtual vcenter? because I will be initiating storage vmotion for virtual vcenter after logging into vcenter itself. Just want to have opinion about it so I don't get myself into a problem.

If anyone have done it, please share experience.

regards,

Hi,

I have done it several times and there is no problem. You can make a vmotion storage like a normal virtual machine.

P.S: It might drop connection for a moment when it finalizes the changes.

Hello Wajeeh:
It is possible to do Storage vMotion of vCenter virtual machines.
Please consider the following:

- You might experience a few packet drops.
- You might experience IOPS slowness if you are performing several Storage vMotions at the same time

Also keep in mind vMotion requirements:
